Description: We are a small family run restaurant in the small sleepy Central American Town of Corozal, Belize. We serve a selection of fresh "home-made" local food. All our food is prepared in our kitchen using only the freshest market finds. Patty's Bistro is the dream come true for owner/cook. Patty's Bistro is an extension of Patty's home's kitchen. Patty feeds her customers and family at the restaurant. She takes pride in her cooking and personally prepares every meal that leaves her kitchen. When in town stop by and say hi, we'll greet you with a smile and we'll make you feel at home!

Patty's was recommended to us by the cab driver we used and while we were there several locals came in for lunch. Service was friendly and attentive. The food was not great, but good, and very inexpensive. We had beef fajitas ($6 US) and chicken enchiladas ($4 US). I was hoping for ceviche but the server said they did not... More

At Patty's you can enjoy a very good dinner in a relaxed and quiet atmosphere. Although service is fast and attentive, here you could also find your calm to, e.g. write your diary. As many other places tend to serve only as a quick food intake venues or others might be of the bar-type with loud music, here is one... More

My husband and I always stop by Patty's when we are in Corozal (once or twice a month). We get our lunch to go as we are heading back to our village. The chicken burritos are our favorite and they are huge! They are not filled up with rice and beans - those come on the side. These are packed... More

I REALLY enjoyed the food and the service was exceptional. I enjoyed a pleasant conversation with a fellow American on his first day also. Great meeting place.

This is one of the longest-established family restaurants in Corozal, and it has managed to preserve its reputation for good food and service over the years. It serves daily specials, so you can't always guarantee to get something that is on the menu, but there's plenty of choice, and it's always enjoyable. I just wish the beer was colder though!

In general this was exactly what I wanted. Good solid Mexican / Belizian dishes for lunch. With three kids under 5 in tow there was no kids menu so they shared an adult order of shrimp and fries. My wife and I had chicken and beef burritos which come in tomato sauce and feel more like you are eating a... More

Thank you for your resent visit to Patty's Bistro. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the food. I must apologize for the missing menu items. Fresh fish in Belize is seasonal. When fresh fish comes in at the dock in Corozal I am one of the first buyers on the dock to buy fish. I do not compromise... More

The food/service are good but I have not been back since October 2013. It is only restaurant in Corozal that adds 18% tax to the bill. All other restaurants and businesses the tax is in the menu/listed price already. I found out they thought I was a tourist and they could get away with it. They lost a lot of... More

Hi John, thank you for sharing your experience, March 11, 2014, about your visit in October of 2013. I think that there has been a misunderstanding of the tax code of Belize. As a tax paying, registered business, collecting tax is not only my obligation as a business owner, but it is also law. As you stated other restaurants, or... More

As we approached the restaurant around 6pm, a man that worked there told us that it was already closed, despite the opening hours on the board outside stating otherwise! Then a lady appeared and reassured us that it was still open after all! It was all a little confusing but we ventured in nonetheless. The service was quite speedy and... More

Thank you for your resent visit to Patty's Bistro, and for sharing your experience. I am sorry my food did not excite or impress you. My ingredients are fresh and I do my best to stick to traditional Belizean/Yucatecan recipes. In a small sleepy town, many businesses, including my own, close shop for the day when business is slow, but... More

Nothing fancy, but a bit more upscale for Corozal. The menu has a nice variety of food at decent prices. We had chicken wings that were flavorful and ribs. Not huge portions but adequate. The place has a bar too if you just want to stop by for a beer.
